DKA Panel: The Hollywood Inclusion Crisis



Friday, March 4, 2016

5:00 pm

142 Dwinelle Hall

In the wake of the #oscarssowhite movement, the panel will discuss the erasure of POC talent at the oscars as a symptom of the larger issue of lack of diversity in hollywood and the media, and the effects of misrepresentation on the public. The panel will also tackle questions of intersectionality regarding gender, sexuality and ability.

Panelists:
Ephraim Walker - Consultant Producer, Fruitvale Station
Cecil Brown - UC Berkeley African American Studies, Author
Kim Nunley - Screenwriter
Andrew Barlow - UC Berkeley Sociology
Da Carla - Director, Actor, Performance Artist
Kristine Stolakis - Documentary Filmmaker
